Enter Shikari have been a household name for almost two decades now, their unique blending of genres endearing them to a disenfranchised world starving for change.
After the tables were turned during the COVID pandemic, Enter Shikari found themselves floundering without their reliable support network, at a creative loss with seemingly no resolution. Rather than allowing the state of the world to defeat them, the band took an introspective look at themselves and what was important to them, with the resulting album A Kiss For The Whole World – released earlier this year – reaffirming not only their passion for music but also their unyielding love affair with their fans.
As is normally the case following a successful album release, Enter Shikari have been taking to the stage consistently ever since, with the juggernaut finally returning to Australia for the just completed Good Things 2023 Festival.
